New Hampshire Connections Information System (NHCIS)


NH DHHS has developed a new information system for early childhood and out-of-school time programs and professionals. It is called the NH Connections Information System (NHCIS), and it includes several components. All families will find resources to make informed decisions about child care services that meet their needs. NH professionals, policy makers and partners will use the system information to make data-driven decisions that improve professionalism and workforce quality to positively impact children. The NH Connections Information System is overseen by the Bureau of Child Development and Head Start Collaboration Program Improvement Specialist with a team of Child Care Aware® of New Hampshire and ACROSS NH supporters.
